    spatchcock's Note:

    In this recipe, fresh ginger flavors the sauce, and ground ginger and other warm spices are rubbed on the fish to make a flavorful, crisp crust. Be sure to buy whole coriander seeds and grind them in a food processor or spice grinder; pre-ground coriander will be too fine.

      We really enjoyed this salmon recipe. It had really nice flavor. The only change we made was to use prepared ginger in a tube to save a little grating time. I would definitely make this again. Thanks!

      Very nice! I had to use ground coriander, I ended up needing about a tablespoon to make the paste. But the flavor of the dish was still very good. The butter in the sauce really makes it! The only thing I might change next time is to use a bit more fresh ginger, I really like it and it was a little subtle in this dish. But I'll definitely be making this again. Thanks!
